Where in New England is Dylan Dreyer? Friday
In the Ben Stiller comedy, “Night at the Museum,” history comes alive at night. When the sun sets here on the New England Aquarium, things come to life too and you can explore them during an overnight sleepover.
"It’s almost like going into the woods at night with a guide and you do it all night long. The biggest problem for those adults is getting the kids to bed," said Aquarium spokesperson Tony LaCasse.
We hope you like jellyfish because that's where you'll sleep: camped out on the floor of the sea jellies exhibit.
How about making some noise in the trainer for a day program?
You'll go behind the scenes with the fur and harbor seals and, who knows, it could turn into a job one day.
"I ended up moving out to the Boston area and got a volunteer position at the Aquarium here and have been in the marine mammal department ever since," said senior marine mammal trainer Rochelle Briscoe.
John Hanzl works as a diving safety officer at the Aquarium.
"I hear quite often, ‘Dude you've got the coolest job, I've ever heard,’" said Hanzl.
Hanzl swims alongside the sharks and stingrays, making sure all the creatures inside the great ocean tank get enough to eat.
While you might think his job is dangerous, this is what he describes as his closest encounter:
"I've accidentally stuck my hand in a shark’s mouth before and cut my knuckle on it. That was my fault, the shark could care less and she just swam off and I apologized," said Hanzl.
